Bachelor Apartment by M3 Architects
Order and Serenity
The phrase "bachelor's pad" often evokes images of wild party spaces full of extravagant boys' toys. This serene and orderly apartment by Odessa-based M3 Architects is anything but that, and all the better for it.
This bright and airy open plan apartment has two rectangular pillars in the middle, which the architects used to divide the room into distinct living, dining and sleeping areas. Neutral colours predominate, with layers of grey, beige and white creating a sense of comfort and serenity. In addition, the use of marble in the kitchen, bathroom and fireplace adds a touch of discrete luxury. The feeling of orderliness is enhanced with plenty of straight lines and block shaped furniture, but there is a sense of playfulness too, especially with the pebble shaped suspension lights above the kitchen counter cum dining table.
This is a well considered and elegant apartment sure to make non-bachelors green with jealousy.
